How Does 2TB Lifetime Cloud Storage Sound?


White iPhone 4 Prototype Spotted On eBay

In the past few weeks, white iPhone prototypes and leaks have been popping up all over the place. Following a series of videos posted by a Vietnamese website showing a white iPhone 4 running an old iOS 4 build with different versions of multitasking and Spotlight, BGR managed to shoot some photos of another white iPhone running on T-Mobile USA network. Not to mention the fact that Apple is widely expected to finally introduce the white iPhone 4 tomorrow after a 10-month delay, although no official announcement has been made yet.

If you’re that kind of collector that doesn’t mind spending money to get your hands on Apple memorabilia, however, a white iPhone prototype is available on eBay. The prototype unit reports the usual XX Apple-internal marks on its case, runs iOS 4.3.1 (build 8G4) and it appears to be an AT&T iPhone. The unit has 16 GB of storage and it’s got DF3039 engraved on the front panel – perhaps an ID number for the unit. The eBay seller has posted several pictures of the device, and claims it’s “a mint condition Executive iPhone 4.” The price? This prototype is currently bidding at $2,838.00 and, as you can see from the photos, it comes with an old-style proximity sensor different from the one that will ship with the public version of the white iPhone.
